Is all DE "food grade"?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have found a 25# bad of DE for $13 no shipping charge. The web site doesn't designate food grade or not. Is there such a thing as DE that isn't food grade?  (it is packaged as an absorbent)  If so, does it need to be food grade if I"m not putting it in their  food?

 

thanks

NO, most DE is pool filter grade and not safe to use around your birds!

 

 

I buy 50# for about $35 locally.

 

 

This is food grade DE--note the wording. It's also called fossil shell flour.
